10 Things

Ten Things I'm loving right now:

1. Crunchy sprouts...enjoyed in a pita with hummus and veggies.
2. Rian acting like a zombie in 3D glasses.
3. Ashleigh getting super crafty with the sewing by making a glasses case for her daddy.
4. Fresh basil shells and veggies from the tailgate market.
5. Our bounty from the tailgate market this morning.
6. Beautiful yellow flowers from the tailgate market.
7. Homemade pizza, made with a no rise, no wait pizza dough...yumm.
8. Dinner from PF Changs last Thursday bought by one of my best friends, thanks Jeanine.
9. Hotel and tickets to aquarium bought for our weekend in Atlanta.
10. Family time, family time, family time.

Those are the ten things I am loving right now, just to name a few. What about you?

Peace, Yasmin

Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny again to share two of my favorite things. Knitting and reading, but I forgot to include a book in the picture, because I was intent on having my son model my current knitting. At the moment I am reading another Debbie Macomber book and also reading Lama Lama Misses Mama to the little guy a lot recently. He loves Lamas. The knitting is a go at my first hat. It is for an adult. I still have a long way to go with it, because it has 30cm on it before decreasing. It will have a rolled brim and I am quite excited to finish my first hat.

Peace, Yasmin

It has been a month or so since my last post. I have not had the energy, inspiration, or motivation to post anything since. The truth is that I am not sure what to post about. Should I write about the tragedy that we experienced too recently or something else. I don't feel I am ready to write about the death quite yet, because the truth is that we are still too fresh in the grieving/healing process. But we are trying to heal through taking better care of ourselves, through nature, through crafting, and through family time. The first set of pictures where my daughter is wearing a dress and there are many flowers is at the arboretum on that tragic day before we knew. The pancakes are the "White Pig" blueberry pancakes we had for breakfast that morning...they were wonderful. The last few pictures are at the Cradle of Forestry last weekend.
